Frederique Constant Arabic Heritage Edition
Frederique Constant launches a special edition for the Middle East, the Arabic Heritage Edition.
For as long as time itself, Arabs have been precursors in the fields of mathematics, algebra and astronomy. For this noble culture, not only did the stars and the moon tell a story, but they dictated their daily lives. Indeed, this culture used the stars and the moon to create the lunar calendar, which is still followed today. Nighttime and all its celestial wonders hold the most important meaning in a Muslim’s life and this is why it was only natural to Frederique Constant to design this timepiece with a midnight blue dial and incorporating a moonphase at 6 o’clock.
The Arabic Heritage Edition features Eastern Arabic numerals on the dial. The system was adopted by Arab mathematicians in Baghdad and passed on to the Arabs farther west. After one of his visits to the Maghreb region, Fibonacci later adapted these symbols to the numerals used today in western society. Frederique Constant’s timepiece honors this heritage by placing these eastern Arabic Numerals on the dial as one of the most precious Arabic Heritage symbols.
The watch is powered by the FC-715 calibre and holds a 40,5mm stainless steel case featuring a case back opening, that once opened reveals the heart of the movement. The movement features a 6 o’clock opening for the moonphase and date by hand featuring the Eastern Arabic numerals, both adjustable through the crown. As a true manufacture movement, completely in-house designed, produced and assembled, it features Perlages and Cotes de Genève decoration and holds a 42h power reserve. The whole is completed with an elegant blue alligator strap. This special watch will be available in all Gulf Cooperation Council countries.
